Climate Change Geoengineering: Yahushua Come Quickly

But now, the cat is officially out of the bag, as even Forbes just dropped a bombshell on its website: a new plan from Harvard scientists to “tackle climate change through geoengineering by clocking out the sun,” an admission that strangely enough has managed to stay off the radar screens of most major online media publications.<<<Read More>>>

Disease: For the Love of Predators?

Here we go with one more “study” that “suggests” that a reduction in the presence of foxes and perhaps other smaller predators who feast on mice is causing an increase in those rodents/mice that carry and spread diseases such as Lyme Disease.

For at least 6 years there have been ample studies suggesting the same thing. However, one of the problems associated with these so-called “studies” is that in one form or another all causes not desired by the individual or group of individuals seeking desired results, are blamed on “Climate Change,” i.e. Global Warming.

When reading the latest report about predators and the spread of disease, I recalled that I had read not that long ago about Joh Lund, publisher of the Maine Sportsman Magazine stating that he tended to agree that a reduction in the number of foxes could be the root cause of an increase in Lyme and other diseases carried and spread by small rodents like the white-footed mouse that carries Lyme. Lund’s hypothesis is that the reduction of foxes is caused by direct competition from coyotes. With Maine and other states experiencing ample growth in the number of coyotes, wolves, and coywolves, the result is a sharp reduction in foxes and other smaller prey responsible for keeping in check the rodents that carry disease.

Perhaps we can just as easily blame the increased spread of diseases, such as Lyme disease, on a misguided approach to wildlife management. So long as wildlife managers insist that the crux of their decision making will be based upon social demands, i.e. the protection of large predators, then we cannot expect any changes that might result in the reduction of disease-carrying rodents.

To go along with this misguided approach to wildlife management, there are ample groups and individuals with pet projects aimed at protecting one species of animal over the other with all the fabricated excuses for doing so. The larger and wealthier the animal protection group is the more pressure they can put on wildlife managers who insist on making their decisions based on social demands. 

Most state wildlife managing departments openly invite this kind of pressure to be brought on themselves by publicly announcing that they will cave into social demands regardless of any scientific knowledge.

At work, we have those who believe that killing off large numbers of deer will reduce the presence and spread of Lyme Disease. We also have those who love coyotes, wolves, coywolves, and all other breeds and mixed breeds of wild dogs who refuse to allow any managers to necessarily go about killing those animals in order to find some kind of balance that should be desired for a healthy ecosystem and thus creating an atmosphere where people are less likely to get sick.

Perhaps lost in all this modern-day Voodoo Science and Romance Biology is the fact that animals are nasty and spread diseases. I don’t personally believe that this creation was intended to live in our homes or that we should be demanding that disease-spreading animals of any kind should be protected. This misguided hogwash about Nature’s Balance is causing all kinds of problems, the majority of which are not being talked about and people refuse to listen. It’s easier to blame all problems on Climate Change than to address these issues responsibly.

If wildlife biologists and managers, who aren’t completely brainwashed into this modern wildlife management hocus-pocus, were allowed to manage wildlife from a real scientific perspective and an understanding that many of these animals are a resource intended for the people, and void of perverted social demands, perhaps then and only then will be able to do a better job. Until that happens – and I’m not holding my breath, – we can expect more disease problems and safety threats to the people who want to pursue Life, Liberty, and Happiness.

“When, how…and by whom?”

I recently wrote some colleagues that”:

“Bad laws” not only “ensure bad results”: they are like the bushel baskets full of oysters (and salt water) that some East Coast bay man totes in the bed of his pickup from boat to market 5 days a week.  Pretty soon the bed and then the truck shows evidence of rusty corrosion but by then it is too late.  The rust spreads, the value of the truck plummets to nothing, and he just keeps driving it until it falls apart.

These bad laws are like that salt water dripping from those baskets and we are noticing more and more corrosion while we try to tell ourselves that it isn’t too bad and we should get more years from the truck.  But we are just fooling ourselves. Rural America (and urban America as well but no one dares mention it) is the truck and we not only no longer care for it but we abuse it (and the people that live there and use it) because we accept lies from government on behalf of the rich and powerful about what a good thing it is to protect large, deadly and destructive predators that eradicate game animals, ranchers, and rural communities on behalf of pagan claptrap about biology and more hidden agendas than termites in an African termite mound.

A colleague responded that:

No need to explain why something needs to be done about this ever-increasing problem, the next line of questions, when, how…and by whom?”

——————————————————————————————————————-

My response-

THE problem is (unjust, un-Constitutional, tyrannical, etc.) absolute power given to central government bureaucrats in federal legislation like the ESA, Animal Welfare Act and similar Acts “enforced”, administered and regulated by US Fish & Wildlife Service, National Park Service, EPA, US Forest Service and BLM.  In a word, it is Political.

Regarding wolves; federal bureaucracies, and especially USFWS, have stolen money from state wildlife agencies, introduced and protected wolves and with few exceptions converted the State Wildlife Agencies and environmental scientists, Universities and “science” into little more than paid subcontractors for federal agendas.  Federal politicians and bureaucrats are rewarded with money, votes (mostly urban) and fame for doing what rich individuals and rich and radical environmental organizations want for a host of hidden agendas from eliminating hunting and private property in vast swaths of America to reducing the human population and stripping most of the human benefits created in the past century.

Both federal Legislatures and the Presidency benefit from happy environmental radicals and the “Deep State”, “Swamp”, (whatever you want to call it) that manages ESA, wolves, grizz, etc. for them.  Federal judges are nominated and ratified by those folks and this accounts for the increasing national divide in courtrooms reflected in whether “your” judge emerged under Democrat or Republican reigns.

The naked truth is that, like abortion, the Democrat Party is 100% behind this environmentalism and anyone deviating from that absolute support is marginalized and either silenced or removed.  The Republican Party has many members that talk a good game about “doing something” about these matters depending on the temper of those that elect them, but it is only talk.  Given the declining rural voting numbers, electing and expecting a good person to be able to fight to limit the power of the bureaucracy in these matters is wistful, to say the least.

All through this the federal bureaucracy gets increasing budgets, more higher-grade positions (and retirements), bigger bonuses, and a publicly unchallengeable authority no matter the basis or outcomes.

The current Administration boasts it is “de-regulating” and it is but “de-regulating” is only a temporary fix because it only reflects the authority of the current President and his appointees.  What they do can (and will) be undone done in a New York nanosecond by the next President who, if the last fifty years tell us anything, will be a “Deep State” or ”Swamp” enabler to his or her bones as will their successor for a long time.  The Mueller Probe alone tells us that but don’t forget the IRS, FBI and DOJ’s recent history as political weapons that appear to only be growing bolder and stronger about controlling us on behalf of our rulers. Consider getting political support for things like wolves and grizzlies in this climate.  A Yukon trapper just killed a grizzly near his cabin and then discovered his 10-month-old baby and its mother ripped apart where they had tried to flee the same grizzly.  Do we hear even one peep from rural Americans in the Lower 48 about the insanity of spreading and protecting grizzly bears by the federal government in the Lower 48?  From any of “our” NGO’s or state governments?

The current Administration tells us they are “purging” environmental radical bureaucrats.  I watched the current federal natural resource bureaucrats pop up out of the mud in the 1980’s and 90’s, often in high positions immediately.  Using the new race and sex preferences that financially benefitted cooperating top managers quite handsomely; common sense and scientifically educated bureaucrats were steadily replaced by extremist activists with actual animus toward the agencies and their historic missions FOR THE BENEFIT OF PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY THOSE LIVING WITH AND/OR UTILIZING THOSE RESOURCES.  Not only 20+years of such “purging” and hiring (I was terminated in 2000) but more importantly how they each replicated each other when hiring, promoting and awarding bonuses like wolves and grizzlies being imposed into settled landscapes has created a federal (and most state) radical workforce that if not reduced by 75% each year and then kept below 25% of current levels while Universities and science are reformed, will defy any controls by whatever it takes.

Unless we amend this top-down, federal mandate approach to wildlife management, all the “de-regulation” and personnel changes will be temporary at best.  So, one might ask, “what can we do”?  We must change the authority and jurisdictions that has been given to federal bureaucrats and replace it with a restoration of state authority over wildlife in the State excepting those species covered by ratified Treaties.  Federal concerns about “endangered” species (not sub sp., races, populations, etc.) should be proposed to the State with rationale, objective and federal funding for however long proposed.  State acceptance should allow amendments and require both legislative and Governor acceptance.  This is where rural residents of the state need to restructure the state ratification of such proposals to give rural residents increased ratification weight in the approval process.

So how do we get there in the present political “climate”? 

I live in a very liberal, Democrat state.  The only Republican elected last month was a dogcatcher in some rural norther County and has since been forced to flee when Antifa arrived in town. (That is a joke.)

About 4 hours ago I put out my flag and picked up my Saturday edition of the Minneapolis Star Tribune in the driveway.  When I opened it, the front page had an article, “Students get charged up about climate change”.  Here are some excerpts:

  • “When it comes to confronting climate change” “Some adults get struck on certain things” and “No is not acceptable.”
  • “Youthful advocates are leading rallies, gathering petitions and taking daring climate resolutions to City Halls and County Boardrooms”.
  • “But they’ve also studied their own backyards – from the urban core to the suburbs and small towns.”
  • “So iMatter (sic note the little ‘you’ in the name of one of this little-known enviro front organization) studies the energy behind other movements, including the fight for civil rights and same sex marriage.”
  • “Emotions make movements.”
  • “Young people can personalize this, can reach people at an emotional level.”
  • “Cities can make a big difference.”  “You get an enough grass roots action happening… it can force the state and federal government to move.”
  • “The city (sic Grand Marais, an expensive, elite enclave on the North Shore of Lake Superior) has even hired a climate change Coordinator, a position funded by a McKnight Foundation Grant.”
  • “It’s a very individualistic place”, said Craig Feist, 17, of Finlayson, about 100 miles north of the Twin Cities.  “People have their land, and they consider that their domain and do kind of whatever they want to do on it.”

Now I could call this a Socialist/Communist approach to brainwashing young minds and setting the stage for a government takeover because it is the reverse of Mao Tse Tung’s Cultural Revolution wherein the rural peasants occupied and purged the cities and the elites.  It is a rare glimpse into how these liberal bastions gain, keep and control political power.  Here we have the privileged elites using their children to lay the groundwork for purging the countryside and those yokels that oppose any of their agendas. However, I ask you to consider how “our side” in this environmental confrontation has behaved and can be expected to continue to behave:

  • Do we energize young rural students to dismiss adults with whom they disagree?
  • Do we send kids into the cities to explain what wolves and grizzlies and many other GI (Government Issue) animals are doing to our communities?
  • Do we send kids forth to defend property rights to property-less urbanites?
  • Do we condemn urbanites for being herd-animals (versus “individualistic”)?
  • Do we presume to brag that we have “studied” our home places and therefore have the right to lecture and abjure urban know-nothings?
  • Do we send forth youthful missionaries to cities to explain why it is so important to “Keep and Bear Arms”?
  • Would we rightly expect rural youth to be listened to in almost any city if they extolled such things publicly without fearing of violent reactions?

Until we can put the environmental genie of unjust federal power back in the bottle I cannot imagine how anything really changes.  We are forced to maneuver outside the walls of government about controlling wolves; limiting future areas to be infested; how controls will be effected; who will do the controlling; how long will controls be effected; and how will it all be paid for?  Traps are nasty and inhumane.  Snares are icky and unacceptable non-target species.  Planes are illegal and uncontrollable over property.  Can controls be forced in private properties or government landholdings?  When can control be exercised?  When killing livestock or pets?  When in a yard?  When appearing sick?  Who is responsible for rabid wolves or human infection outbreaks like tapeworms, etc.?  Can wolf population target levels be based on big game numbers, livestock depredations, human attacks or imagined threats like hanging around school bus stops?  Can hides be sold for trophies or home decorations?  Can any County or State say, “We don’t want any wolves here and we want to be able to kill any wolf here year-around”?

It is only realistic to see a hodgepodge of temporary and conflicting results emerging and being challenged (until the next President is elected).

Still Pushing “Climate Change” As Effecting Winter Ticks. Changing Propaganda?

It is incredibly insane listening to and reading the idiots who insist on spreading the lie that Climate Change is the cause for an increased presence of winter ticks which consequently are killing moose by sucking them dry of blood.

For years now, brain-dead scientismists have beat their propaganda drums that due to “lack of cold winters and ample snow” winter ticks are thriving and killing moose. Their premise has been that northern states, like Maine, because of warmer winters was not killing the ticks. Ignorance and the need to promote a false, non-existence of “Climate Change” (in the context that it is being promoted) failed to understand the complete life cycle of the tick and to what severity of cold, snow, and the right conditions needed to actually limit the number of ticks.

But that hasn’t stopped them from their money-making promotions of “Climate Change.”

From news out of Canada, a report falsely claims that global warming is the cause of moose mortality in Maine and other Northeast States as well as Canada. However, this time around, perhaps motivated by the fact that nobody is buying the B.S. that the lack of “normal” cold winters and snow are causing the ticks to thrive (people are looking out their windows and seeing 3-feet of snow and below zero temperatures in mid-November), they’ve decided to change their propaganda (lies) to approach the manipulation from a slightly different use of words (such as changing global warming to climate change): “…that tick is a parasite that’s given more time to find a host. Moose are just exposed to this potential parasite load for a longer period of time.” (emboldening added) There is never any consideration that the simple fact that too many moose perpetuate the growth and distribution of the winter tick.

Because, evidently, the lack of cold and snow (which isn’t happening on a regular basis) isn’t working out to substantiate their false claims of global warming they now are promoting that due to a warming climate ticks have a longer period of time to find a host moose to ride on for the winter and such them clean of blood.

What’s amazing is these clowns spend all of their “research” time (wink-wink) trying to figure out what’s happening to the moose because of the tick (by using someone else’s data) and nobody is interested in studying the actual tick. The only information being used about the tick is nonsense spread from one half-baked scientismist to another and repeated en masse and eagerly by an irresponsible, enabling, and lazy Media.

Evidently the authors of this propaganda piece didn’t bother to ask those in Maine conducting moose studies, or they didn’t want to because it might upset their agendas, otherwise, they would have found that Maine’s biologists are suggesting that the seemingly unprecedented spread of winter ticks is caused simply by the presence of too many moose.

But, there is no money in finding solutions and there is far more money in perpetuating “Climate Change.”

What’s most sad is the fact that truth and reality are being suppressed due to the perpetuation of the false myths about global warming.

Plio-Pleistocene decline of African megaherbivores: No evidence for ancient hominin impacts

WHAT? We can’t have this kind of stuff contaminating the convenient narrative that man is a piece of crap who only kills everything in sight!!!

If you are of the educational capacity of this editor, what that headline means is that a new study suggests that man wasn’t the cause of mass extinctions of now nonexistent big animals that once roamed Africa.

Science Magazine has access to information about the study (subscription required).

New Center Maine shares more information.

For example: “The animal decline might have instead been because of environmental factors such as declining atmospheric carbon dioxide and expansion of grasslands, researchers write.”

OH MY! GASP! SPUTTER! CRY, fall on the floor and bang your head. Is this “suggestion” suggesting that global cooling (decreased carbon dioxide) was the cause of mass animal extinction in Africa? If so, nothing makes any sense. If according to the Algorites, increased levels of carbon dioxide warm the planet and will eventually kill us all, then millions of years ago, according to the research being examined, a lack of carbon dioxide caused extinctions, then wouldn’t increased carbon dioxide, i.e. Global Warming, a.k.a. Climate Change be good for some animals and bad for others? Haven’t sensible scientists and observers been suggesting this since like forever?

And all of this without internal combustion engines and billions of people farting.

Isn’t carbon dioxide mostly a good thing?

According to the brilliance of man, no matter what happens to carbon dioxide surrounding this existence…wait for it… We’re All Gonna Die! – after some have made their millions/billions/trillions.

Then we become useless eaters and need exterminating.

Government Climate Report/Lie: A Criminal Event Worthy of Imprisonment

If you want a good laugh, the Government Climate Report (which by the way is NOT a “Government” report as the lying bastards want us to believe) can be found at this link. Note that for the most part, it was the same lying bastards who lied about warming temperatures that created the new lie about “We’re All Gonna Die!”

These phony baboons have an excuse for everything as they blame everything on “Climate Change.” They admit they can’t prove any of this nonsense but that doesn’t stop them. If you choose to believe that man is the cause of some kind of global warming or even climate change, just consider the fact that these buffoons have been caught so many times fudging their own data to make it look like it’s really warming up they have zero credibility everytime they open their mouths.

The report even went so far as to say that if it wasn’t for Global Warming, the earth would actually be cooling because of sun activity – wink, wink. The sun’s activities are keeping the rate of warming in check, according to these con artists.

One of the authors said, “We are seeing the things we said would be happening, happen now in real life.” Children can have vivid imaginations.

However, put a little thought into this statement: “Climate change is transforming where and how we live and presents growing challenges to human health and quality of life, the economy, and the natural systems that support us…

“Annual losses in some economic sectors are projected to reach hundreds of billions of dollars by the end of the century…

“We’re going to continue to see severe weather events get stronger and more intense…”

We know that “Climate Change” as is presented to us by the U.N., U.S., paid scientismists, and our extremely corrupt government, is about as fake as you can get, and yet, with the help of an enabling Media, continued hype of weather events, the same kind of weather events we have had historically for centuries, instills fear in people who are incapable of any kind of rational thought anymore causing them to accept the premise of Climate Change. Thus…We’re All Gonna Die!!!

There is only one way that all these “weather” events can happen as predicted. That’s if you control the technology to make it happen. We know the technology exists to control the weather with chemical spraying and lasers. This same technology can enhance a weather event that could cause weather systems to change the composition and the tracks they might normally follow, making them more severe or tracking them along desired routes in order to cause the most or sought after devastation.

As a means of hiding the Government’s own sinister, evil, demonic actions, what better way to do this than to fabricate Climate Change that is conveniently attributed to everything.

If the technology exists to manipulate the weather to make it severe, does it stand to reason this same technology could be used to make weather events less severe? Instead, the thieves, robbers, and liars in Washington, along with their paid bands of criminal scientismists, suggest the cure is MORE TAXES. And you still want to believe that your government is not the lying, cheating, stealing, corrupt demonic slimeballs they really are.

Hide the Decline Has Become Create an Incline

*Note* – A regular reader of this website sent me all the links and information to compile this report. I am thankful for his help. (TKR)

The other day we discovered that “researchers” had published text in the journal Nature stating what they claimed showed that ocean temperatures were warmer than first estimated until a critic and mathematician questioned the margin of error published as part of their findings.

The authors subsequently began to walk back their findings but still claimed that the ocean temperature was still much warmer than original predictions indicated.

To understand this, one has to understand the fraudulent scientism and outcome-based, corrupted “scientific process” these criminal scammers are using. The authors of the fudged article claim: “Much of the data on ocean temperatures currently relies on the Argo array, robotic devices that float at different depths. The program, which started in 2000, has gaps in coverage.

By comparison, Keeling and Laure Resplandy, a researcher at Princeton University’s Environmental Institute who co-authored the report, calculated heat based on the amount of oxygen and carbon dioxide rising off the ocean, filling round glass flasks with air collected at research stations around the globe.”

In case you failed to understand what this is saying, let me see if I can help. No longer are these clowns actually measuring the temperature of the ocean water or the air for that matter. Instead, they are collecting oxygen and carbon dioxide and then calculating what they want the temperature of the water/air to be to fit their fraudulent theory. If you accept this false premise and scientific fraud, it means that you are a promoter and a “True Believer” of the false claim that carbon dioxide causes warming.

Don’t lose your thoughts on this process as I continue.

It also seems that this same kind of deceit and misrepresentation is being used by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) in publishing claims about warming air temperatures globally.

According to Realclimatescience.com, NOAA collects air temperature data from over 1,200 locations globally. What we are learning is that when it comes time to report data, sometimes more than one half the stations don’t bother. No problem! NOAA simply makes up the data, claiming they “make adjustments” as they receive the data. Problem is they don’t always get any data, and it appears they don’t really care.

An NOAA graph showing actual measured temperatures, versus “adjusted” air temperatures, looks like this:

It is important to recognize that if you were to migrate the two colored lines closer and closer to approaching being on top of each other, we see that the paths of the graphs are identical. In other words, the “adjustments” were crafted to make it appear that from the beginning of the measuring process until the more recent time period, warming is becoming greater. How convenient.

Recall what I wrote earlier about “researchers” no longer actually measuring air temperatures, but instead collecting and measuring oxygen and carbon dioxide? Oddly enough, it just so happens that adjustments that NOAA makes to their temperature data coincide exactly with the amount of carbon dioxide they claim to have collected.

Powerline Blog’s John Hinderaker gives readers a look at how NOAA fudged their data (adjustments) for Auburn, Maine to show one location where such manipulation makes it appear as though in the past 15 years or so, global warming has really accelerated.

In a graph that looks eerily like the one shown above, we can see that the green line is what NOAA says is the average yearly temperature. The black line is “measured” air temperature and the blue line is what the new graph looks like after “adjustments,” i.e. fabricated data. Once again, take notice that if you move the blue line up the chart it almost magically looks just like the black line – only early on in the history of measuring, the blue line indicates it was much colder than the actual measured or yearly average temperatures indicate.

Fraud! It’s a scam! It’s a criminal enterprise when you consider the billions of dollars being earned promoting this nonsense. Why are these people not locked up in jail? Oh, wait. I know. They are all part of the rigged system. It’s for the very same reason that we get drawn into what is presented as crimes by politicians, yet never any prosecutions. RIGGED.

According to this guy, politicians who were very outspoken and supportive of “Climate Change” got voted out of the election process. Nothing is presented to substantiate his claim of such other than names and how they stood on climate changer. Maybe, maybe not.

I do know that this writer is far more optimistic as to why voters voted the way they did. He writes, “There is no evidence humans are on the verge of suffering from catastrophic man-caused climate change. Voters know it, and that’s why they sent a clear message to Democrats and Republicans in the midterms: Stop putting the interests of left-wing environmental radicals before those of working families — and if you do, do so at your own peril.”

I’m simply not convinced that there are that many voters that understand the real, honest-to-goodness scientific process that can produce real honest results. I wish there were.

Perhaps the only hope is that with more and more people presenting more and more evidence of FRAUD that is costing them financially and in the loss of freedom, more people will begin to “get it.”

Yes, Climate Change is a scam. Scientifically, it is impossible to happen unless it is being done deliberately by men, i.e. our own government. The purpose of the promotion of Climate Change in this context is to rob us of more of our money. What happens when the Government and the Global Power mongers have taken all our money?

They will come for us and kill us in so many ways we can’t comprehend.

In Effort to Promote Global Warming, Scientists Screwed Up on Ocean Warming

Researchers with UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography and Princeton University recently walked back scientific findings published last month that showed oceans have been heating up dramatically faster than previously thought as a result of climate change.

“Our error margins are too big now to really weigh in on the precise amount of warming that’s going on in the ocean,” Keeling said. “We really muffed the error margins.”<<<Read More>>>

Cursing Globull Warming

This morning I woke up to some more of Al Gore’s BS global warming, a.k.a. Climate Change. I need to remind readers that it is ONLY November 15th. It has been brutally cold. Presently at my house here in Maine, we have about 7 inches of snow on the ground. The current temperature is hovering at a balmy -2 F. The forecast calls for a Winter Storm Warning tonight into tomorrow. Snow accumulation of 5 – 10 inches expected, followed by more blustery winds and bone-chilling temperatures.

I haven’t even ventured out to go deer hunting. In my youth, I would have taken complete advantage of this snow and been on the track of a big buck every opportunity I had. Instead, yesterday I tried to figure out why my Farmall tractor up and decided it wasn’t going to run. The problem is it’s so damned cold I can’t spend but a few minutes at a time tinkering. With cleanup from the last winter storm still needed everywhere and more predicted, it looks like I might have to call a friend to plow me out if we get too much of the white stuff. I can pack it down and hope for the best. I’ll be headed South around the first of December (what was I thinking?) so maybe I can get by until then.

It would be nice to get some of that “Indian Summer” next week, or even the week after but so far nothing of the sort is in the forecast.

In the meantime, Al Gore can suck rotten eggs.

Considering that I used to walk to school every day, uphill, both ways, this weather is not normal, nor does it tell us the climate is changing. It reminds us that weather is weather – aside from the fact that technology exists to manipulate the weather and to use it as a weapon of warfare and people control.

This prolonged cold and snow remind me of November 1968. I hunted on snow just about the entire deer hunting season. Heading into Thanksgiving week, even in the lower elevations, the snow was higher than knee deep. Most of us in the family had tagged out before Thanksgiving and I clearly recall that right after dinner on Turkey Day, my father and brothers and I headed to the local ski jumping hill, packed it out and took a few jumps – on Thanksgiving. We could have been jumping before this but deer hunting came first. We needed the sustenance.

*Note* – It was two years later that during Christmas Vacation Week, the ski team gathered afternoons and evenings with bushel baskets, garbage cans, boxes, shovels, snow blowers, and snow plows. We scraped the adjacent field next to the ski jump trying to find enough snow to cover the jumping hill in order to ski on it. Comparing the two events is a reminder of “Weather Change” and nothing to do with Climate Change.

The Winter of 68/69 turned out to be a record snow year. I have to say I honestly cannot remember about temperatures. Generally speaking, with a lot of snow there is an absence of any real prolonged frigid air.

I am in hopes that all my hunting friends are able to take advantage of this snow and it increases their chances at success.

I wonder if the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife had it in their minds someplace, before issuing a record number of “Any-Deer Permits” that there may be snow to hunt on the majority of the season?
